For savvy real estate investors, corporate acquisition specialists, brokers, agents, and buyers, bank owned properties, also known as REOs, are some of the most desirable real estate available. Many REOs come with better deals, better returns, and less competition. Bank-owned properties are still readily available. Across the state of New York, there are countless bank-owned properties ready for the taking. Buying a bank-owned property can be a good step for some and knowing more about REOs is in your best interest.
Property owners try to avoid any legal claim to their apartment, house, commercial buildings or parcel of land. They would like to own a property “free and clear” with a “clean” title. A lien is a claim against property made by someone who needs to secure payment of a debt. In essence, if you have a lien, your property is collateral for the money you owe. If you were to sell a property with a lien, you will either face buyers who will pay you much less than asking price or no buyers at all.
Refinance is a term that implies the acquisition of new mortgage financing and paying off the existing mortgage. There are many reasons one would need to refinance their home. Some choose refinancing to consolidate debt. Others refinance because they have found lower interest rates and would like to save money in the long run. Sometimes, a homeowner would like to rehabilitate the home and need the extra money.
Many things can go wrong in a real estate transaction. When buying or selling property, we hope that the contract, home inspection, financing, and closing go off without a hitch. In some cases, people find themselves in a situation where someone has acted in an unlawful manner, opening up the parties to litigation.
